Pontoon Development

In 2013 Mull and Iona Community Trust secured funding from The Coastal Community Fund for a pontoon facility at Ulva Ferry. This is a community-run facility, employing local people.

In 2011 Ulva School Community Association (USCA) was formed as part of a successful campaign to save Ulva Primary School from closure.  USCA requested support from Mull and Iona Community Trust (MICT) to help prepare a community development plan and identify projects to strengthen the local community. MICT and USCA obtained funding from Highlands & Islands Enterprise to employ a local development officer, who then carried out the community consultation. One of the priority projects identified in the plan was a waterside development to provide tourism and local employment.

In 2013 MICT secured funding from the Coastal Communities Fund for a pontoon facility at Ulva Ferry. This community-run facility, employing local people, was opened in August 2016.

In support of USCA, MICT has also introduced a successful community transport scheme and has built 6 homes for affordable rental in the local community. All helping to keep Ulva Primary School open!
